HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Almost three months after a north Houston shooting landed a 16-year-old in the hospital, police have released surveillance photos of the wanted suspects.

The video above is from a previous story.

The shooting happened at about 11 p.m. on Dec. 29, 2021, in the 8600 block of McGallion Street.

According to officers, two teenage males were walking down the street and one of them, a 16-year-old, was shot in the arm. The teen was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Authorities believe the shooter also shot at a second victim, a 15-year-old, but the victim was not injured.

The other two suspects were described only as a young-looking Hispanic man and an unknown man with an orange and black beanie.

Police said the suspects left in a dark-colored, four-door sedan with black rims. The vehicle involved is believed to be a Toyota Camry, which may have been driven by a fourth unknown suspect, police said.
